Today’s post is going to be a little bit different than my usual “beauty product” related posts! A few days ago, I actually witnessed a young girl no older than about 9 years being bullied because of her glasses and this wasn’t even the first time that i’ve seen this happen.It really annoyed me and I found this quite strange due to current popularity in the glasses-wearing trend and I thought society were even beginning to embrace the sexiness of glasses. In 2011 in particular, we saw a rise in the trendiness of “nerdy clothing and in turn glasses. There are even glasses that you can buy now that have just normal glass in the frames.. so people who don’t even need prescription glasses can wear this trendy accessory….Look who’s “four eyes” now is all I can say.
Over a year ago, I was prescribed with an astigmatism by my optician… which means that I know have to wear glasses when I read, go on the laptop, watch tv.. basically anything that involves me to strain my eyes in any way. I admit at first I was reluctant to get glasses.. they are a pretty big change to get used to. HOWEVER after a few months they really started to grow on me and now I completely embrace them. The key is to pick a frame that not only suits your face but also a frame that makes you feel comfortable and confident in. Personally, I wanted to make a statement with my glasses.. so I chose quite thick-rimmed black frames but you can literally choose from so many styles if that’s not your thang!
I know this post is a bit rambly and may sound pointless.. but I just want to kinda show that we shouldn’t be ashamed of glasses. We should be showing the youth of today that glasses are nothing to tease about and can in fact actually be cool.
SO if you wear glasses…work that shizz and embrace them!
Would love to hear if any of you have any had any bother over wearing glasses? Or what your thoughts are on the matter?
Thanks for reading guys and until next time Byeeee! Kx 🙂
